A LIVFLY "OFF YfAR"
For an "off year" the campaign of
1906 are reusing unusual, public interest,
says the New York Evening Post In
four states Massachusetts. Rhode Island,
Ohio and Virginia governors are to be
elected. In Pennsylvania a state treas
urer is to be chosen, and in Maryland a
sufferage amendment, which has led to a
fierce campaign, is to be submitted to the
voters. Georgia is the scene of an excit
ing canvass for the Democratic primary
nomination for governor, and in a number
of other states legislatures are to be
chosen that will have the election of a
United States senatorship. Among these
will be New Jersey, where a successor to
Senator Dryden is to be chosen, and Ten-
Returns from the harvest fields are
more than satisfactory. Even in the dis
ricts where the hut weather was thought
to have damaged the crop, the averages
are better than usual.
The National Irrigation Congress which
commenced its labcrs today in Boise, is
from all over the United States. This ex
change of ideas and the exhibits on dis
play from reclaimed arid land, through ir
rigation cannot help but result in inesti
mable good. The Observer is proud that
so many of the prominent citizens of Un
ion county are or will be present during
A great many people in the United
States concur with Mr, Bryan that the
only solution of the railroad problem, is
government ownership. However since
congress has passed the rate bill and it is
being demonstrated that indiscriminations
may be adjusted in the courts, many who
heretofore have strongly favored tovern
ment ownership of the railroads are now
inclined to wait and see to what extent
present wrongs can and will be adjusted.
The slaughter at the Stolypin reception
in St. Petersburg recently was marked by
utter deperation on the part of the assass
ins. Two of them were killed and two
were badly wounded. They all acted
with a degree of coolness and audacity
that must spread terror, inasmuch as
there are more left of such revolutionists.
They are plentiful in Moscow as well as
St. Petersburg. Modern history teaches
that the Russian system of oppression
cannot endure. Instead of relyingon bay
onets Czar Nicholas should give the Russ
ion people a oroad measure of liberty and
place full reliance on it.
